The Danish Rheumatism Association has issued a strong warning about Beline capsules.
Beline capsules are sold online as a herbal food supplement. However, The Danish Rheumatism Association became suspicious about the product and asked the Danish Medicines Association to analyse it. The analysis showed that Beline capsules contain:
Oxetacaine - a potent local anaesthetic
Betamethasone - a corticosteroid
Piroxicam - a non steroidal anti inflammatory
Chlorphenamine - an antihistamine
The Danish Rheumatism Association said:
"The dietary supplement is dangerous and fake. It is sold as harmless Chinese herbs, but in fact it is loaded with substances that can lead to serious adverse effects and new serious diseases if not used carefully"
If you have been taking Beline capsules regularly you may experience side effects if you stop them suddenly. We advise that you run off the press release and take it to your GP for advice.
